The ITIL® Managing Across the Lifecycle Certificate (MALC) is the final component that leads to the ITIL® Expert in IT Service Management qualification.
The Managing Across the Lifecycle course builds on the knowledge and experience that learners obtained in the Intermediate courses. Learners are required to apply this knowledge, as well as the experience they have obtained performing service management functions. There are five strategic assignments developed around the Royal Phraya Hotel chain. This hotel is also featured in all other ITpreneurs ITIL® courses. However, in the new course, the chain has expanded their business to other countries around the globe. The scenarios build upon each other, which means that, as in real life, if you make mistakes at the beginning, it will come back to you later. Each of the scenarios covers multiple learning objectives from the MALC syllabus. Additionally, the entire syllabus is fully covered in the course. Learners, who perform well in this advanced training program, will do well in the final MALC exam.
The Royal Phraya has just conducted an acquisition and learners have to assist management in the integration. When doing so, they will be asked to analyze and apply ITIL® concepts and apply these to the situation (Bloom Level 4); and synthesize and evaluate information to create a meaningful result for the hotel (Bloom Level 5). Learners work in small teams, or operate individually, and when working in teams their team roles rotate. Each team member must lead at least one strategic assignment. During the course, the instructor plays the role of the technology manager of the Royal Phraya Hotel chain.
ITpreneurs delivers a next generation learning experience with the MALC training program. This program will test your readiness to become an ITIL® Expert, and will guide you through the process to make sure that you understand your growth areas, as well as the areas in which you excel.
